  1. most of the hotels in Abu Dhabi and Dubai have gluten free baked goods. Amazing buffets with large selection of gluten-free foods. I visited a number of hotel kitchens that had gluten-free sections. Some great operations and meals.
  2. Anyone have experience with this?
  3. Having lived in Barcelona and worked in Milan and Parma, Ive found the many of the good restaurants are using different type of original wheats like Einkorn and Ferro and different French wheats whos names I forget. Some new hybrid wheats can have 14 times the amount of gliaden protein than these non hybrid wheats. IN japan they even have 2 names for wheats -- Komugi and merikenko (American powder)
  4. Japan (Tokyo And Kyoto) Gluten Free

    i would tend to agree with your mom and that comes from more than 30 years in and out of Japan. the quality of the produce, meat and fish tends to be much better than the US becsaue it gets to market much faster and becasue there is a demand for quality above the demand for low price. As it was pointed out, this has nothing to do with gluten. There are alot of things you can eat in just about any restaurant but there are things to learn like onigiri -- rice balls, are seemingly innocent but 90% of htem contain wheat starch. most larger grocery stores and department store basements you can get gluten free soy sauce. --- most chefs still assume that soy sauce is soy so never take anyones word for it when it comes to soy sauce. Of al the mixed salads at family mart, 7-11 and lawsons only the gobo salad was safe. good luck
  5. Green Tea

    A lot of teas in Japanese American restaurants are called green tea but in reality are other teas like gen mai cha or mugi cha. In both those cases the teas contain barley and can cause glutening -- at least in me. Real 100% green tea does not but often restaurants don't know the difference. Ask to see the box the bags came in if they are not sure or in doubt.
  6. Gluten

    have never seen gluten in canned tomato but you should ALWAYS check the labels.
  9. FYI
  11. There are a few hundred types of bananas although we only get a few in most western stores. When you talk organic bananas there could be different types. All bananas are divided into groups of A (acuminata sugars) and B (balbisiana - starch) they are classed but chromosomes so your average williams bananas is aab or 2 parts sugar to 1 part starch -- Organic bananas at least here in hawaii and some west coast places are abb - -2 parts starch to 1 part sugar. If your store has plantains, try one of those when it gets very ripe. They are really good
  12. Eating out - please help

    I travel all the time too and after some time get used to knowing what not to do. Usually I try to go to places I know have something safe -- like Chinese and Thai places -- Just get steamed veggies and rice. I do carry a small spray bottle of Braggs aminos. Otherwise I get salad unless we stumble on a place that has a gluten-free Menu. Also I ask to talk to the chef becasue the servers are always trying to please and may say something they dont understand. Its the chef who knows. -- When I cant get to the chef its sometimes a disaster like last month when they brought be a flour tortilla wrap -- That was bad enough but the vegan guy was given fish. There are some places that will never get it!

  14. Try to get some Dal from an Indian market. Their lentils are grown in dedicated areas since its such a large crop for them Toor Dal is my favorite. If there is no store in your area, try online. Never had a problem with lentils form Indian markets.
